Current prescription medication flight rules

I've been searching for this information for quite a while and am having no luck. The TSA rules say medications don't have to be in their original prescription packaging unless the individual state requires it. I have not been able to find out if either Missouri or Florida is one of those states. Does anyone know?


Thank you.

I've never had any problems in FL with mine not being in original prescription bottles. As a matter of fact, I've never had any problems anywhere, including Europe. I don't think it would be an issue unless you were carrying an unusually large amount of drugs, to be honest. I don't recall flying into or out of Missouri myself, so can't really speak of them. When you refill your prescriptions, part of your receipt is a copy of the label from the bottles. You can simply keep that with your meds.

I've never had a problem with mine not being in their original pharmacy labeled containers in Washington (state), Texas, Florida or California. International travel, even just Canada, I always carry them in their original pharmacy labeled containers.

I've never had problems with any prescription meds being out of the original bottles at TSA - and honestly how can a state "require" you to have it? Lenny is on so many prescriptions that it would only cause problems to require us to have them - he needs to fill weekly am and pm pill pods to make sure he takes them all. The only medicines that I do take original packages (with the labels of course) are any liquids or creams/gels and I separate them so it is easily seen at TSA as a prescribed medicine and not something that should be in a 3-1-1 bag.

Our pharmacy provides a receipt stapled to the bag that shows what the drug is, who it was prescribed for and when. If you have a smart phone, you could always snap a picture of those so you have the information available. I do take things in the original bottles but we drive, so space isn't a problem. As my husband does take opioid drugs for pain control, we are careful to make sure we have documentation for those, in case of a traffic stop, etc. and always carry them in the original containers.
